Titans clash as Roxhill Elementary girl's coach Sara Haug takes on foosball Goliath: Geoff

SCORES Seattle would like to extend a big thanks to Brass Tacks in Georgetown for generously hosting the raucous SCORES crowd (try their poutine, you won't regret it). Also, thanks to all of our brave competitors who left everything on the table. Though they may not have hoisted the trophy above their heads at the end of the night, they found themselves warmed with pride (not just beer) at having competed with giants among tiny plastic soccer men.

Fresh Off the Waiver Wire: Andy Herriott!

Hey there! My name's Andy Herriott and I'll be joining Seattle SCORES with Coach Across America as an Americorps member this season!

(I'm on the left)

After working as a City Year Corps Member at Roxhill Elementary I became well acquainted with not just the SCORES program, but also the effect it has on all the youth that participate in it. Having a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing I often mentioned that it would have been the perfect program for me growing up, so when the listing came up I jumped on the chance immediately.  I’m excited to be a part of the SCORES family and be a part of something that brings so much joy and excitement to youth across Seattle.

Who is your favorite writer?
I don’t think anyone ever has just one favorite writer, but my list includes Raymond Carver, Haruki Murakami, Richard Brautigan, George Saunders, Tony Hoagland, Mark Strand. The more I think about it the more I want to include, but I suppose you have to cut it off somewhere.

What is your favorite sport?
The sport I've played the longest is lacrosse, but I've always been interested in sports that weren't incredibly “main stream” in the US. During the Olympics I love watching things like curling, badminton, table tennis, and handball. Watching the best athletes in the world compete in a sport they love is always amazing to me.

Favorite sports moment?
Watching South Korea play Uruguay in the knockout stage of the 2010 World Cup. Somehow we had ended up in the South Korean fan section and it was a crazy experience. They had a giant flag that they pulled over the entire section as well as giant drums and signs. They were the most upbeat and excited fans I had ever seen and the South Korean team had a really exciting play style. You never knew what was going to happen when they were playing that year.

Favorite Food?

Even after having worked as a wood fire oven pizza cook for almost 5 years, I will always say pizza. The possibilities of what you can put on a piece of dough and stick into an oven are endless. Give me some prosciutto, mushrooms, and red onions on top of some mozzarella, provolone, garlic, and olive oil and I’m in heaven.
